Store & Thaw Colostrum Management System

Pyon Products

At last – a colostrum management system you can afford!

The Store & Thaw Colostrum Management System comprises a Storage Kit and a Thawing Water Bath.

Fast, efficient collection and handling of colostrum, so it can be tested for quality, and frozen for future use.

The Store & Thaw Water bath is designed to thaw colostrum quickly (within 15 minutes), avoiding damage to the delicate immunoglobulins.


Many calves do not receive sufficient colostrum in the first 6 hours of life. Keeping a bank of frozen colostrum is an efficient way to make sure every calf gets a good start in life. Colostrum is a vital first feed. Calves acquire passive immunity from their dam’s colostrum and without it they are vulnerable to disease, leading to poor growth, higher vet & medicine bills and poor performance.

Dairy farms with a Johne’s Contol Programme will need to discard diseased colostrum from ‘red’ & ‘amber’ cows and feed healthy colostrum as a substitute. This has to be easily accessible and easily heated up for quick delivery.

More colostrum – means less calf hood disease
More colostrum – means faster growth
More colostrum – means higher yielding heifers
More colostrum – means more pregnant heifers
